Princess Diana didn’t tell Prince Charles she knew she was having another boy when she was pregnant with Prince Harry , a Royal biographer has sensationally revealed.
Diana and the Prince welcomed their first son William to the world on June 21, 1982 less than a year after their wedding.
Andrew Morton claims that around two years later when Princess Diana was pregnant again with Prince Harry, she kept the sex of their child secret.
While she and Charles were delighted to be expecting again she kept the key detail from her husband.
Mr Morton has made the explosive claims in his explosive autobiography, Diana: Her True Story – in Her Own Words, the Daily Express reports.
He said Diana told him: “I knew Harry was going to be a boy because I saw on the scan. Charles always wanted a girl.
“He wanted two children, and he wanted a girl.
“I knew Harry was a boy, and I didn’t tell him.”
When Prince Harry was born on September 15, 1984, Mr Morton claimed the Princess told her Charles’ reaction was less enthusiastic, even though she was delighted about his arrival.
According to Mr Morton his first comment on seeing Harry was ‘Oh God, it’s a boy,’followed by “and he’s even got red hair.”
Prince Charles’ apparently was broody for a baby girl until Harry’s christening, at which he reportedly told Diana’s mother, Frances Kydd: “We were so disappointed — we thought it would be a girl.”
Diana said: “Mummy snapped his head off, saying: ‘You should realise how lucky you are to have a child that’s normal.’
“Ever since that day the shutters have come down, and that’s what he does when he gets somebody answering back at him.”
Princess Diana and Prince Charles divorced in 1996.
